Are you a seasoned customer support professional who wants a job that serves a larger purpose? Are you interested in making a meaningful, life-changing difference for millions of students?
Digication is changing the way students learn from the ground up. Instead of rote learning through lectures and tests, Digication allows students to create online portfolios - collaborative and safe learning spaces - to encourage project-based learning. Campuses report that sustained ePortfolio usage leads to higher levels of student success, including significant increases in pass rates, GPA, and retention rates. Digication is now being used by students at over 6,000 K-12 and Higher Education schools.
We work remotely and employees are distributed but more importantly we work as a team, with direct access to the company founders. We are self motivated, hold ourselves accountable for our work and commitments. Although we work with a sense of urgency, we don’t like cutting corners. Integrity is more important for us then profitability (although we are profitable!). We are not a “work hard/play hard” startup but responsible adults with diverse backgrounds and interests who take our mission, our clients and our lives seriously. We value personal growth and learning over titles and salaries.
We are expanding our instructional technology team and are looking to add a valuable member to our team as a US-based Customer Support Specialist to aid institutions in implementation and ongoing support.
We are looking for a high energy, enthusiastic individual who loves working with people and with technology to better education and enrich the lives of students, teachers and alumni. The position of Customer Support Specialist is vital to the success of each of the schools we work with through implementation and the development of long-term collaborative relationships.
